KUALA LIPIS: The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) will not hesitate to take drastic action against those who create trouble during football matches.
FAM deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said they viewed crowd trouble or fighting among fans very seriously “because such incidents can tarnish the image of the country”.
“I am worried that the trend (fighting among fans) will end up as a big loss to the country. We want to focus on football development and quality, including the standard of refereeing and safety at stadiums.
“To create trouble is easy but it will not portray a positive image. I hope such incidents will stop because we will take drastic action,” he said after opening the 2014 Enduro Challenge at Taman Tasik Burung Mandi, Kamahang Hilir, Benta, near here, on Monday.
Last Friday, fans from Pahang and Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) were involved in a clash at the Darul Makmur Stadium after their Super League match.
A number of fans were reported to be injured in the incident. — Bernama
